MARIPOSA — Cal Fire Madera-Mariposa-Merced Unit (MMU) has announced that the burn permit requirement in Mariposa County has been lifted as of Monday, Jan. 22, at 8 a.m.
Open burning will be allowed on “Permissive Burn Days” as established by Mariposa County Air Pollution Control District, without a Cal Fire burn permit.
Permits are still required in Madera County.
MMU would like to remind residents that creating and maintaining 100 feet of defensible space is essential for increasing your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire.
Fall and winter are perfect times to create vertical and horizontal spacing between grass, shrubs and trees. Please trim trees to keep branches a minimum of 10 feet from other trees.
• Remain in attendance of your fire.
• Make sure there is a water source nearby.
• DO NOT burn on days forecast to have high or gusty winds.
